5by_mobile_app_screenshot_304x200In this Friday’s installment of our partnership with 5by, the video discovery platform that curates the web’s best viral videos, we take a look at the top five videos of the week from the platform’s TV category.

Trending this week on social are Jon Stewart and protege John Oliver, and sketch comedy returns as SNL gears up for its season premiere and Key & Peele continue to build on their popularity.  For more on the videos selected, Theo Tabah, 5by’s Head of Content:

Jon Stewart from The Daily Show makes a rare appearance in this weeks lineup with a fantastic segment on climate change. In fact, it rivals John Oliver’s wit and delivery in his rant on the dated and atrocious Miss America Pageant. These two TV hosts worked so well together… it’s good to see they can both thrive on their own.

SNL is back this Saturday to celebrate it’s 40th season! Special guests this week include Chris Pratt and Ariana Grande. Needless to say, the promo for this week’s show is sure to get you excited for what’s to come.

SNL, an OG in the sketch comedy game, will have to keep up with Key & Peele. In their new season, their TV show as a whole proves to be a little confusing and inconsistent, but what they release online are among the best comedy skits we (and apparently everyone on Twitter and Facebook) have seen this year.

Lastly, Youtube Channel ‘Bad Lip Reading’ released an incredible dub-over of season four of The Walking Dead. These videos are always huge successes, and this one is no exception.
